Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)

Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) is a form of manual therapy that combines motor control theory and manual muscle testing to address the cause of pain – dysfunctional movement patterns stored in the brain.

NKT uses manual muscle testing to find muscles (movement patterns) that are weak or dysfunctional in relationship to other muscles. We know from motor control theory that if the body fails to perform a specific function, the motor control centre lights up and becomes open to new learning. The therapist uses this to their advantage to reprogram the motor control centre and correct the dysfunctional movement pattern.

Working in this fashion allows the therapist to bridge the gap between a clients history and their symptoms presenting sometimes many years later. Bringing to life muscles/movement patterns that may have been inhibited, or not used to their greatest potential for a long time.

The motor control pattern in the brain can be corrected quickly, plus individual specific drills and homework are performed by the client for lasting results.
